Mariah Carey’s holiday show returns to Caesars Palace this weekend.

You’ve got an extra weekend to prepare for Thanksgiving and Black Friday this year. You should be spending that weekend in Las Vegas seeing an incredible show. Here are just a few of your options.

PAULY SHORE Magic, hypnosis and comedy shows have been part of the hidden gem Spare Room’s programming in recent months at Downtown Grand. On Friday, the new venue gets a big name when comedian and TV personality Pauly Shore performs a stand-up set. It should be a fun night of old-school Vegas blending with the new.
